Comparison of March 2014 to March 2012

Well, it is hard to believe that two years ago we were wearing shorts and golfing during the month March.  March 2012 went down in the record books as the warmest March on record.  March 2014 was not so kind as temperatures averaged seven to twelve degrees below normal across north-central and northeast Wisconsin.  An usually deep snow pack remained across north-central Wisconsin throughout the month.

Here is how March 2014 compared to normal and March 2012.
